Installing on Linux (BigFix scenario)

A complete deployment of License Metric Tool on Linux requires the installation of three components: the BigFix platform, the License Metric Tool server, and DB2 database. Additionally, a BigFix client must be installed on every computer from which you want to collect software inventory data. Depending on the environment size, you can install all components on a single computer, or distribute them among multiple computers.

If you are planning to install all components on a single computer or reuse an existing BigFix infrastructure, you can use the All-in-One installer to facilitate the installation process. If you want to distribute the components over multiple computers, use a separate installer for each component.
